Update. I recieved and installed the samsung ts160 D*/ota reciever with a radio shack u75r uhf antenna on the roof yesterday and here are the results.
Direct TV HD has more to offer HDNET, NDNETmovies, HDHBO, HDshowtime, HD PPV, HD discovery, ESPNHD but compared to the HD cable from charter it is not quite as good quality wise which I hate to say because I HATE charter cable.
2. Our local WSAZ digital signal offers HD!!!!!!! Jay Leno last night was spectacular via my OTA portion of the samsung. The problem is my reciever drops the signal occasionally, which I still have yet to figure out. But HD is now on our local system!
3. Channel 8 and PBS also offer digital signals OTA but no high def yet.
So I think it will be a good investment once all the bugs are ironed out, if my wife can handle it.
